Prognostic utility of biomarkers in predicting of one-year outcomes in patients with aortic stenosis treated with transcatheter or surgical aortic valve implantation

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is a treatment option for patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS), who are considered poor candidates for surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) primarily due to comorbidities. According to a previous study, 30-day and 6-month survival rates following TAVI and SAVR were comparable, but…

Clinical outcome of high-risk patients with severe aortic stenosis and reduced left ventricular ejection fraction undergoing medical treatment or TAVI

Reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) among patients with severe aortic stenosis importantly impacts prognosis in patients treated conservatively, and increases peri-operative risk in patients undergoing surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) [1]–[4]. Although mechanical relief of aortic outflow obstruction as accomplished by SAVR has been shown to…
